Tracks 1-8 have been semi-confirmed as the 3/12/66 Danish Center show. The set list was given by Lemieux:
Cream Puff War
Sitting on Top of the World
New Minglewood Blues
Silver Threads & Golden Needles
It's All Over Baby Blue
You Don't Have to Ask
On the Road Again
Next Time You See Me
I Know You Rider
Hey Little One
Cold Rain and Snow
I'm a King Bee
Eight of these are extant here. Three of those (Hey Little One, King Bee, Caution) were released on Rare Cuts, and one on So Many Roads (On the Road Again) - the oldest released live tracks. I don't think Lemieux confirmed how much of the show is in the vaults; the full SBD never leaked. Two additional tracks (Good Lovin' & Baby Blue) were posted on a Jam of the Week at Dead.net but apparently haven't been added on the Arc.
2/25/66 probably doesn't exist, unless there is a fragment. The Danish tracks have weighed historically because these eight are the earliest sequence of this length that circulates. Bear had started documenting at this point - before this there are random clips, Acid Test witness tapes/goings-ons, and a three-song Taper's Section (see 1/28/66 frags on archive.org/details/gd1966-XX-XX.sbd.GEMS.81254.flac16 ).
Though this is pre-primal Dead and mostly R & B, future-Jer is heard on I Know You Rider. Pig's delivery on King Bee is fairly histrionic but Billy is already great. Caution is just months away from becoming an animal.
The Schoolgirl>You Don't Love Me >Schoolgirl gets passed around 'cause it's pretty hot for '66 and pretty early for a 20min sammich, even though we haven't dated it better than late '66. (It's pitched very fast and needs -4% correction).
Light Into Ashes' scholarship also argues for a date later than Feb '66, though without pinning it any better than March>May. Jer's use/non-use of amp reverb in Hey Little One is used as a clue, but a guitarist can crank that knob at a whim for any given night. The early CR&S with the fatal doom lyric points to March, as does IKYR.

3/12/66 Danish Center -
As to the show itself - tracks 1-8 - it's totally irresistible for this era - *beautiful* sound, and that makes such a difference when hearing these old shows. Isn't Hey Little One just lovely?
Listening to '66 Dead with this kind of sound clarity is like being doused with a bucket of cold water - and I mean that in a good way! Treat yourself to this if you're stuck somewhere in the 80s trying to convince yourself that this-or-that show is actually pretty good. This is a totally delightful half-hour that requires no "work" on your part!

The Grateful Dead: Show #17
Acid Test 13 of 19
Very nice sound. King Bee>Caution and GMLSG>You Don't Love Me>GMLSG sandwich was rockin'. Earliest I Know You Rider and Cold Rain and Snow I've seen (please correct me if there are previous recordings).

Again and again
Holy WOW this is crystal clear beauty. If the roots gets you grooving in your boots then this should be part of you collection. Mesmerizing!
Skip the first Stealin' if you want a perfect flow to whatever format you dl to. But don't skip the second, it is IMHO their best performance of it.
Peace and much groove!

absolutley amazing music i love how some of this 66 stuff is tight and 69 can be sloppy somtimes its all good either way.

Notes to self: Recording is not like the new stuff...but it is pretty damn good ...like I am there with them ... sloppy/tight bluesy/rock pure expression ...
Some slight variations from their later 60's sound ... Jerry and Pigpen ... like left and right hands .... they feed off of each other...Jerry is in that lick I love
Pigpen sings his soul out and blows excellent harp...the way I need to hear it ... ain't no problem in the world anyway ... makes me feel like my depression got a good ass-whoopin

This is a ridiculously great show. I must have it if I don't have it already in my collection. I'll call all my friends or email them and see if I can't dredge up a copy. If anyone out there knows where I might find a copy please send along your info.
